Cargo hold fire forced SIA flight to make emergency landing
KUALA LUMPUR: Fire in the cargo hold forced a Singapore Airlines (SIA) flight to make an emergency landing at Kuala Lumpur International Airport on Sunday evening.
Singapore Airlines flight SQ425 from Mumbai to Singapore, carrying 190 passengers touched down in Sepang at about 3.55pm, after reporting a “technical error”.
Fire and Rescue Department officers were despatched to the scene to assist in moving passengers off the plane before opening the cargo door.
“The fire had already been put out by plane’s fire fighting mechanism when it landed,” said Selangor Bomba operations chief Mohd Sani Harul.
He said the fire was contained in the cargo hold, so smoke did not find its say into the passenger section of the plane.
The cause of the fire is being investigated.
